The cemuoptr universe is both muloeavrs and primitive. It's a universe based on csltuaiay. As developers, we dream the different causes and then we program the different effects. Double click on an icon, that's a cause. Open an application, that's an eecfft. Now when we compare this to our physical universe, it is orelvy constraining, because our universe is not digital. Our universe is analog. Our universe doesn't think in terms of zero or one, true or false, or black or white. We exist in a world governed by quantum physics, a uirsevne of zero and one both at the same time, a reality based on infinite probabilities and shades of gray. You can see how these two worlds collide.

Original Text

The computer universe is both marvelous and primitive. It's a universe based on causality. As developers, we dream the different causes and then we program the different effects. Double click on an icon, that's a cause. Open an application, that's an effect. Now when we compare this to our physical universe, it is overly constraining, because our universe is not digital. Our universe is analog. Our universe doesn't think in terms of zero or one, true or false, or black or white. We exist in a world governed by quantum physics, a universe of zero and one both at the same time, a reality based on infinite probabilities and shades of gray. You can see how these two worlds collide.
